>> probably like you the rest of the bay area was is glued to the debate. all know that was the giants game. michael yaqui was watching the debate. >> thanks for making me look like a nerd. >> it's important to you. that was an important game though. >> i thought
did an excellent job last night. the polls, show that out. last night the president decided i'm going to come out swinging in and going to hit mitt romney and show that i'm the commander in chief. i am in charge and you are not ready for prime time. that is basically how he wanted to go out there. romney was basically shocpo decided to agree with the president on pretty much everything. i think his strategy may have backfired. as i watched the coverage unfold and look at the polls, i think playing it safe hurt romney more than he thought. >> why you think that? >> because when you look at the polls when things that is striking is one of the gender gap reemerge. after the first couple of debates romney close that up a bit. after that
debate the perception that women had, even though he was pouring out the piece love i'm gonna be everyone's love kind of thing, apparently in a post 911 world that is not what women voters really want. they want someone who is strong and forceful in going to protect them and their families. obama one that by 20 or 30 points and that is college advantage. he had to come out swinging. they never telegraphed this but they had some pretty darn good singers in the debate. those zinders are going to be singing through the internet and the next couple of days. zingers are like a good meal at takes a while to digest it. as the story begins to unfold you'll see probably-think
it was a game changer. or a game decider. last night that went to it obama. >> over the next two weeks are there any game changers and had or was that it? >> romney has to fight
everywhere. he has to run the table and a number of different states. ohio and they tried to put pennsylvania and play but i do not think that is going to work. he has to run the table in order to when the electoral college. for obama is more about aggressive defense. not like preventive defense like in the first debate. there's writt off california. california is going to obama. what they do have is a lot of willing people who are willing to make a difference. they're flying all over the country now. >> we are getting phone calls every night about the different propositions. >> propositions are totally different story. >> there's a lot to be decided in california and we will be back ahead with more. >> lots of low gears for the ride across the san mateo bridge. you are not going to be
going very fast. these are basically slow and go. stopping creek for the west on ride. drive times are over 20 to up to 25 minutes for the westbound commute. there is stop and go conditions from before the toll plaza and you'll encounter them sort of like an accordion. think of a caterpillar crawling across the bridge, that is the way to stopping the traffic court here. it moves and waves and that is what we're experiencing right now. also slower than usual traffic for the slower peninsula commute. redwood city mountain view jammed up here in both directions. southdown in northbound between '84 and '85. the bay bridge toll plaza has a stop on the upper deck and was there for about 20 minutes and it had already been a slow ride before that occurred. 880 is the
best approach to the bridge this morning. the golden gate bridge 1 01 southbound is near the peak of the commute for the ride in from iran. we're looking at heavier traffic from just before the north tower to the toll plaza. thereafter marin county is not nearly as well as a ride we had yesterday and one of the better rise for the bay area said. >> it is dry out there compared to 24 hours ago. we had pretty heavy rain especially for the first real storm of the season. it is trying cloudy for now but that does not mean it will stick as we head into the afternoon. a lot of instability in the area most of the weather has pushed its way east. it is currently snowing in the sierra. if you're for that area. it is chilly out there . 51 out the door pleasant
1053 in hayward we really will not warm-up by much. there's a lot of cold cloud cover. we anticipate cloudy conditions and temperatures only in the '60s. 61 degrees for san jose 62 for campbell and los gatos, another chilly afternoon in store for any act low 60s for castro valley. we also have the potential for at and isolated thunderstorms north of the gttortomorrow 6:00
a.m. with a this band making its way to the bay area once again. moderate to heavy rain and for the most part it will stick north of the golden gate bridge. until the heart of your commute it will start to sack south and the showers will be lighter in nature but again we will continue with isolated showers for the rest of the day. really viewed as allied radar that are extended forecast what's on tap for the weekend coming up and my next report. extended forecast what's on tap for the weekend coming up and my nejack, you said you wanted a whole new breakfast item. i give you... flap jacks. hmm! thing is, i don't know if i'm comfortable with people eating my face. how 'bout a loaded breakfast sandwich with country-grilled sausage, bacon, ham, two fried eggs, and melting cheese on toasted sourdough.

kevin ford as well as to russians. there'll be a two day journey. >> wisconsin man who shot and killed three people including his espl after turn in all of his weapons. a court ordered the man to turn and all of his fire arms because there was a restraining order placed upon him to protect his estranged wife. she was one of the three people shot and killed when he opened fire at the hair salon where she worked. four other people were hurt in that shooting and then he took his own life. the court-martial proceedings for the man charged in the 2009 shootings of fort hood texas is delay comes as former army psychiatrist who you see here with no beard has endured now. he is appealing a ruling that he has to appear clean shaving in court as required by the
military court. he was found in contempt because of the facial hair. 13 people were killed and two dozen were injured in that attack. he faces the death penalty or life in prison without parole. >> take a look outside there's a big backup of the bay bridge toll plaza with clouds and the chance of showers today. we're 53 in oakland looking for a cool high of the mid-60s. we're also watching the dow
>> the traffic is a slow go walnut creek. >> indeed there are no problems except of course for too many cars and not enough lines. we always see a backup of the southbound direction headed toward alamo. the hot spot continues to be the san mateo
bridge. it appears to be moving well in front of the toll plaza but we will of course likely see backup once again as we're still looking at drive times of 18 to 25 minutes. the delays continuing as they have for the last month. slightly more with construction work still under way at the base of a high-rise. >> drive for now an morning ands way to the east. it is currently still snowing in the sierra but again there's a lot of instability associated with this system. to not be surprised if you encounter a pop-up thunderstorm or showers into the afternoon. mostly cloudy
conditions with some are waking up to more wet weather. more information coming up and my next report. with a full look at your send a report coming up straight ahead. >> (cheers & applause) who else? the giants have won the pennant! >> out in the pouring rain the giants make a comeback at three games to one and now they're on their way to leave rome series for the second time in third eat three years. even in the pouring
